Abstract

The excitation efficiencies for K- and L- x-ray fluorescence by a Mo transmission tube operated at 30 kV have been measured. K x-ray excitation efficiencies for 14 elements ranging from A1 to Y and L x-ray excitation efficiencies for 12 elements ranging from Br to U are presented. The K x-ray excitation efficiencies are compared to those predicted from theoretical photoionization cross sections and empirical fluorescence yields, and the L x-ray excitation efficiencies are used in conjunction with theoretical photoionization cross sections to derive average L-shell fluorescence yields.
